Hall Conservation Cleaning

In the Georgian Hall we have lots of beautiful antique furniture. One of the jobs that our dedicated volunteer conservation ladies do is the more time consuming and delicate cleaning.

The photos show the work the volunteers have done on the messenger chairs in the North Entrance, cleaning of the delicate ornaments in the Morning room, bringing the copper Clifton fire panel back to full glory in Violets bedroom and the very big job of cleaning the plaster work on the first floor landing.

Painting outside the Hall

In 2018 we began the restoration of the  exterior of the Georgian Hall. We repainted the north, east & south sides in a warm stone ochre colour on its masonry with barley white window sashes and frames. These are the original colours that the Hall was painted in back in 1764 upon its completion. 

We are now are undertaking the restoration of the west evaluation which is requiring very complicated scaffolding and stone restoration where erosion has has taken hold. A successful grant from the Coastal revival fund has helped greatly.

Roof & Chimney restoration

2019 has seen the continuous restoration and maintenance of both the roof and the chimneys. The stacks are extremely tall and required pointing, painting and wire mesh covers placing on top of the pots to discourage nesting birds. 

Some trusses inside the roof have been replaced and bespoke metal plates made to ensure strength. The huge Venetian window has been repainted on the west elevation along with a new Georgian style fire escape door.

Painting inside the Hall

Under supervision, many of our volunteers help with some light maintenance and painting. Plainer walls and internal window frames are carefully upgraded whist more decorative and significant areas are done by experienced professionals. Our painting volunteers also do lots of light maintenance on our outbuildings all year round.
